The Robson Ranch Women’s Club (RRWC) will feature Georgina Ngozi, the executive director of the Greater Denton Arts Council. Her talk, The Transformative Power of Art, will demonstrate how art in all of its forms—visual, performance, and literary—has the power to educate, heal, and unify communities. Art can transform lives. She will speak to how art is basic in our lives—we decorate our homes, we adorn ourselves, and we use art to express the full range of human emotions. Georgina will share her own experiences working with young people in a variety of settings—juvenile detention centers with children facing uncertain futures, hospitals with children confronting serious illnesses, and museums where children develop a passion for the arts. She also will provide insights about the creative practices she uses to unify diverse communities in celebration of the arts and each other.
Georgina’s professional experiences confirm her expertise. She has worked in arts education and administration for more than 25 years; she is noted for her visionary leadership in children’s museums throughout the United States. As a Noyce Institute Inaugural Fellow, she is currently planning an international Summit for Women Leaders, scheduled for this year in Mexico. She is also the founding Board Member of the Sugar Hill Children’s Museum in Harlem, N.Y. She also reviews grants for the National Endowment for the Arts, the Institute of Museum and Library Services, and the Texas Commission on the Arts. Her knowledge and experience will inspire us.
The charity for the July luncheon is the Denton Community Center.
